What started as a design company 25 years ago has blossomed into a retail establishment on McKinney’s downtown square with a focus on home furnishings and accessories.

My Favorite Room is owned by interior designer Kathy McCabe. She said the store is a collection of the decor items she loves most. The items are then styled by her designers and retail team, and are available to purchase.

“We’ve been blessed to do a lot of big projects, and after they were complete, we’d always ask, ‘What’s your favorite room?’ So that’s where we got the inspiration for our name,” McCabe said.

Just like the name, My Favorite Room sprouted from a client’s idea.

“Over the years, I noticed my clients’ needs were changing,” McCabe said. “The design business was different, so retail adds a whole new facet [that] we are still growing.”


My Favorite Room found its way to McKinney after outgrowing its space in downtown Plano.

“I used to shop for clients on the square in McKinney and loved the ambiance,” McCabe said. “It had a great feel and vibe, so that drew us to the area.”

The company’s design trends now feature a light foundation with pops of color, McCabe said.

“Everything is light and airy,” she said. “We are constantly looking for different ways to present things. It’s our job to take trends and put our own twist on it.”

McCabe said she gets inspired by anything and everything.

“It can be a little overwhelming coming into the store,” she said. “Maybe even a little intimidating. But they need to realize we go to Target just like everyone else. It’s mostly [about] how we put together the full package.”

McCabe said she spends her creative energy on designs, but the clients’ needs are her main focus.

“We do it all, so it just depends on what the client wants, which might be an interior design project from the ground up or helping people who just want to recover furniture,” McCabe said.
